Cool! Fingers crossed he can get it to run at a decent framerate on Z80s. Big smile

I have asked to Assembler a video of the final version running on Turbo R so you can check what is already finished:

And initial Z80 work (not 7 Mhz nor 5 Mhz mode):

Please ask him to fix the typo in 'invincibility', as 'invincivility' [sic] sounds like a game mode where you have to be very un-civil ;)
Also, "Take a key for coming in!" would perhaps be better translated as "Take the key to come in!".

The money bag at 2:25 also looks to be floating below the port hole, rather than in it. Is that intentional?

Also, he might want to consider upscaling the video to 720p or 1080p before uploading, as YouTube treats lower resolution videos are trash and compresses the video even further, leading to horrible artefacts and lower quality music. It will also force a 30fps framerate, even when the source material is 60fps, which could lead to flickering sprites being rendered invisible.

Apart from that, the game already looks amazing! Excellent work!

About the typo, now he is aware of it XD

Much better! :D
Though if I understand correctly, framerates higher than 30fps are from 720p and up
Or is the video actually recorded at 30fps?

Something’s wrong...

I’m swiping my Credit card on my phone and the game cart is not appearing here at my house!

Why does the music sound so weird? The arcade has 2x YM2203, it should be possible to emulate it correctly.
Also I'm not 100% sure but the timing of the game seems off... It seems to run faster that it should.

It's how is spelt in the original game, leave it like that!

I don't think it sounds weird? To me it's fine, even if there's room for improvement.
They're using SCC for the music. I wonder what you mean with which chip to emulate an OPN like the YM2203? Or do you mean rather to rearrange for OPLL?

The background music is silenced by some sound effects, I would rather not happen.

In the arcade is just like that.
